This Lion Papa Figurine is one of the popular collectible polymer clay works of art by artist Jon Anderson. A one-of-a-kind adult male lion sculpture, this Lion Papa Figurine is made by laying out "canes" of different colored clay cut into individual tiles that are decorated with unique patterns inspired by classic moorish motifs, Native American art and design, Celtic themes, and ancient petroglyphs.
No two FimoCreations figurine are alike.
Tile designs may include classical Moorish motifs, Native American spirits, Celtic themes, and ancient petroglyphs.
Using a polymer or non-terrestrial clay, artist Jon Anderson blends colors to create a striking variety of hues.
"Canes" of colored clay are then laid out to form the shape he envisions, then cut into tiny individual tiles.
Each sculpture is crafted from hundreds of these tiles, applied in a range of patterns to an interior form of hand-carved wood or leftover clay.
Completed sculptures are repeatedly fired and cooled, sometimes creating tiny fissures or "crazing" that further distinguishes each piece.
When the firing process is complete, each piece is hand-finished for a satin appearance.
